Train Marseille → Dijon
Duration 3h19 - From $30
Haven for artists who appreciate the Vieux Nestled right on the Mediterranean sea and an inspiration for artists, Marseille is the third largest metropolitan area in France. And yet it can seem like a quiet little fishing village. Over the last 2600 years, Marseille has built a rich, colorful atmosphere enhanced by the fresh sea air, ancient architectural foundations, incredible art and amazing food. With its history so linked to the sea, it’s no surprise that the hub of Marseille’s action is at the Vieux Port, or Old Town. On the quai de Rive Neuve, check out La Criée, Marseille's most famous theater. Built in 1909 on the site of the old fish auction rooms, you’ll find diverse programming – from the avant-garde to current jazz acts. In Marseille during the summer ? The place Thiars is a lively square dotted with dozens of restaurants and bars, and the ideal place to enjoy an evening en plein air. Learn more about Marseille
Pardon me, but we ask you don’t pass on Dijon This word "Dijon" conjures up the image of a pseudo-sophisticated old man in the back of a limo, asking a passerby if he has a certain mustard. Get this out of your head. The historic capital of the Burgundy region will allure and captivate all of your senses, just like a fine Dijon mustard. Use your France Rail Pass, or Eurail France-Switzerland Pass and easily arrive into Gare de Dijon-Ville from Paris, Lyon or Lausanne in less than two hours thanks to the high-speed TGV. A few blocks from the rail station is the Dijon tourist office at 15 Cour de la Gare near place Darcy. Here you can get information and a brochure on where to pick up the "Owl's Trail." This self-guided tour brings you to most tourist sites in Dijon. The route is marked on the sidewalk by brass tiles featuring a little owl. When you come to a point of interest there is a number marked on the ground. Look up the number in your brochure for more information on that particular sight. (All cities should work like this.)
